Morning Lovelies! Hope you are all okay. Today my blog post is on my favourite perfume, so it’s short and sweet. Some people don’t really have stand out favourite perfumes and I thought I didn’t either but I have always returned to this perfume since I was 17 years old, so that’s a good five years of perfume loving. It always remains my favourite, right at the top of the list and I would say I have quite a bit of a perfume collection. Now that I think about it I can pick my top three perfumes without having to really think about it but that’s a whole new post!
So if you haven’t already guessed from the title and the picture, my favourite perfume is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum. I think my taste in fragrance has changed a little as I have grown up because when I was first introduced to this perfume I preferred the Eau de Toilette version more, probably because it was lighter. I would say that with age I have become more of a bolder person now, and maybe my perfume taste reflects that too (or so I would like to think!)
I don’t really research notes when it comes to perfume buying or choosing, usually I just smell the perfumes when I’m out and about and I either like it or I don’t. I have been very very lucky and I’ve only bought about one or two perfumes for myself over the years and have extremely generous loved ones who have always gifted perfumes that they know I like. Maybe that’s another reason why I’ve never really researched perfumes too in depth before purchasing.
After all these years of wearing this perfume, it is only today I research what notes are within the perfume that causes me to be so attracted to it! And straight away I know exactly why I am so gravitated towards it. It has a jasmine accord running through the perfume, and jasmine is one of my all time favourite scents. It’s so obvious I don’t know why I didn’t pick up on it before, I am so predictable. I find the fragrance to be floral but not sickly, feminine but not sweet at all and although it’s a fresh scent it is quite sultry and sexy in a way which I think is enhanced by the jasmine. It definitely makes me feel much better, more luxurious and classy once I spray it on – its funny how a perfume can do that!
This perfume really doesn’t come cheap, hence why I said I have extremely generous loved ones. It starts at around £48.00 for 35ml for the Eau de Parfum and up to £95.00 for the 100ml. You can have a better look at the range here.
I really do think I will have this perfume in my life for years and years to come, but you never know my taste in perfumes may mature and change, it definitely isn’t a set in stone thing. I like the thought of Chanel No.5, it’s very sexy but I think currently it is still too strong for me but as I mature, I might grow into it. If I could change one thing about this perfume, I would change how readily available it is! I want to be really greedy and keep it all for myself and let people ponder over what special signature fragrance I am wearing.
I am not even joking when I say if someone walks past me with this perfume on, I would straight away notice it and pinpoint that they are wearing it. I have never been able to do that with any other perfume, yet I do it repeatedly with this one. I don’t think there really is much more to say other than this clearly is a winner to me. Let me know if you guys would like a top three perfume post, it would be interesting to see whether the notes are similar in my top picks! Until next time lovelies have a great day, and let me know what your favourites are! Tanzina x
